>> meeting with his former rival mitt romney.
5:15pm
mitt romney had lunch today with the man who defeated him in the presidential race. it was a private meeting - but the white house released this photo. very few details were released - but we're told that the president and romney talked about america's leadership. one interesting moment happened as romney was arriving -- and a man ran up to his car window and began yelling. he was hustled away and arrested. a white house statement says romney and the president promised to stay in touch, particularly if opportunities to work together come up in the future.. we can guess the 'fiscal cliff' might have also come up in that conversation.. today on capital hill - republicans and democrats are still blaming each other for the fact the problem hasn't been fixed.. they're talking -- but that doesn't mean they're moving any closer to an agreement... treasury secretary tim geithner - arriving for a meeting today with house speaker john boehner... the idea - they'd come up with some common ground for avoiding the fiscal cliff. the reality - according to boehner about an hour later... nothing is fixed. nothing much is happening.. >> they know where we stand. it republicans are accusing the democrats of edge of that cliff by refusing to outline possible spending cuts.. democrats say they're still waiting for a serious offer from the

5:17pm
senate and leadership with 146 trillitrillion one. -6 triln dollars in tax increases and also reductions for spending. the mortgage interest reduction is not on the table and 400 billion on on determined to cuts it is a framework for discussion. the president keeps on light of that there is a senate bill in the house that will stop the increases for people earning less than $250,000. >>catherine: what is your best guess on what is the final step to break through? >> there are still yelling, talking it will be difficult. on the other hand, i think there's there is a play that perhaps president obama is not playing it. such that previous presidents have done. >> joe biden, can you see
5:18pm
that he is shopping and costco and eating samples enshrined on wristwatches and he said the we're going to do with. >> i hope so. >> thank you, michael. if you like to connect with michael yaki. his panel iand he is-on twitter. >>jacqueline: with heavy portions of rainfall and the north bay. that is worth it is been for most of the day and a lighter rain fall south of the golden gate. you can see the yellow on your screen that is indicating rainfall rates at one-tenth of 1 in. or more. it is just a little bit more than that with near sinophile, it is picking up at the same about one-tenth of 1 in.. san tetrault tel. and towards san francisco, san rafael -- a light drizzle to light, more steady rainfall. as we take a look at futurecast heavy
